Try French Toast Baked or Stuffed

BlogHer Original Post

When I'm in the rare mood for a big sweet breakfast, it's almost always basic French toast for me (rather than pancakes or waffles). I'll make it with stale challah or brioche soaked in a vanilla-egg-milk mixture and griddled, and serve it with grade B maple syrup.

But frankly, I'm almost never in this mood. I'm much more likely to make French toast for a crowd for holiday mornings or brunch. In those cases, I want something a little more showy and decadent, full of ripe fruit or melty cheese. Or I'd like a make-ahead recipe that serves a crowd, so I can just heat it up in the morning. Or, ideally, both. That's where stuffed and baked French toast recipes come into the picture.
